Gardening Under Black Walnuts Class
Saturday, June 13, 2015
227 West Avenue
Canandaigua, NY 14424
The black walnut is a handsome tree often grown for shade and occasionally, for its nuts. While some plants grow near black walnuts, there are many whose growth is stunted or they will not grow at all. These plants may seem to grow well at first, they will suddenly exhibit leaf yellowing, wilting, and eventual death.
So what’s a gardener to do?
Well, attend the walk- around garden talk – Gardening Under Black Walnuts --sponsored by the Master Gardeners of Ontario County. Master Gardener John Norvell at his garden. John will discuss problems associated with Black Walnut dominated areas, plants that will not grow near Black Walnuts, species that will tolerate the tree, and the use of container gardening as an alternative for species that won’t grow beneath Black Walnuts.
Fee: $5.00 per person, paid in advance. Registration is required. Class size limited. Register early!
